We know Ireland has an obsession with burritos, but this is still a major deal given our population.

Boojum has some of the world's most loyal customers as their burrito came in at an impressive fourth place in this year’s overall top ten dishes on Deliveroo around the world.

Flex those burrito muscles, as the dish bet off the likes of Bubble Tea from Hong Kong and a Poke Bowl from Amsterdam.

The winner that took the top spot on the list was Pad Thaï from Thaï at Home, Paris.

In second was a Cheeseburger from Five Guys, in London.

And in third came Sushi Lovers Poke Bowl from CALI-POKE in Dubai.

Overall, our nation is a clear lover of takeaway as we were featured eight times in the top 10 dishes ordered in 2018 around the world.

Seven of the eight restaurants were based in Dublin, the other one was a Satay (wok dish) from Xian Street Food, Galway.

So it seems the capital of the country enjoy nothing more than ordering their FAVE meal from the delivery service.

While noodles and Hawaiian poke bowls were ultra trendy this year, 2018 also saw healthy plant-based dishes grow in popularity – g'wan the vegans.

Although a firm FAVE during last year was pizza, which remained a top choice for food delivery around the world with five appearing in the top 100.

Looks like we'll have to have a burrito in celebration of Boojum's success – well done, lads.

How much would you turn down to maintain the integrity of your family business?

For global business woman Phuong Tran and her home-grown Vietnamese company THP Beverage Group, it was $2.5 billion dollars. Yup, just think of how much guilt-free online shopping you could do…

An unimaginable sum, but for Tran and her father, allowing Coca-Cola to acquire controlling interest in their valued family business, no sum was worth it.

Watching her father, Dr. Tran Qui Thanh, reject such an incredible amount of money that most could never even dream of has shaped Phuong Tran’s entire legacy from that day on.

Her philosophy revolves around the lessons learned from attempting to compete with giants, and face them down.

Since Tran and her father turned down the astounding offer, they have grown their business to full flourishment and have spread their company to over 16 countries including China, Australia and Canada.

She has now written her debut novel, Competing With Giants, and aims to inspire businesswomen around the world.

Her first book involves Tran, as Vice-President of THO Beverage Group, weaving her advice from her father alongside her own insights into a rich tapestry which divulges fascinating facts on the changing global business landscape as well as the incredible origin story of her own company.

According to Tran, David can indeed compete with Goliath, and even outperform him. “We proved that nothing was impossible.”

Western style multinationals are now being incentivised to devise of new strategies to compete with the emerging Asian market.

“To western countries, the Asian market is a big piece of pie with robust growth in new economies. The world needs to know how an Asian business runs and how its business culture is formed. That’s the story that I wanted to tell in the book.”

Esther Honig, a journalist, blogger and freelance reporter decided to prove once and for all that beauty really is in the eye of the beholder.

She conducted an experiment to “examine how the standards of unobtainable beauty vary across cultures on a global level.”

Honig contacted various freelances across the globe with her photograph and a message:

“Hi my name is Esther Honig and I would like you to enhance this image using Photoshop. I trust you to take whatever steps you see necessary. Make me look beautiful.”

When Honig got the photoshopped images back, she was surprised at the amount of variation:

“Each photo editor draws from a palate of both their cultural influence and their personal aesthetic preferences. This is why two images from the same country may be nothing alike.

“Overall what I’ve learned from this project is this; Photoshop allows us to achieve our unobtainable standards of beauty, but when we compare those standards on a global scale, achieving the ideal remains all the more illusive.”

Take a look at some of the photos below.
